Coach Knows: Pool Safety Tips
As a caregiver, you are setting safe boundaries for your little ones from the very beginning. Safety gates, outlet covers and rules about when and how to cross the street all speak to hidden dangers and gradually teach tiny tots about things that have the potential to harm them.
It shouldn’t be any different around the water. After all, water is everywhere, and children are 100% curious.
Teaching children safe water boundaries helps them develop a healthy understanding of water and how to remain safe in and around it. It is vital that they have gained the life-saving swimming skills and maturity necessary to understand that entering the water only happens with permission and within an arm’s reach of an adult, if swimming skills are not yet proficient.
To help you learn more about how to keep your kids safe around the pool, here’s Coach Clare with some helpful tips.
At Aqua-Tots Swim Schools, we know that you work every single day to keep your little ones safe…for as long as it takes. The outlet covers stay in place. The “look both ways before you cross the street” mantra is repeated. Over and over. And that’s what we know about swim lessons. From Level 1 through Level 6, these life lessons are repeated until your tots can safely and confidently swim into adulthood.
